Accountants selecting new accounting system

“We look more at how our clients work, what drives them and what they want to achieve…We look at their finance systems, such as payroll, HR and accounting software and look to see how they can integrate and improve their business.”

Make sure your transparent with your service providers around your system requirements and ensure its the best for your business: I’m seeing practitioners complaining that the ATO is coming out saying you don’t need to have cloud software to do STP. I get incredibly frustrated that practitioners think it’s about them when it should be about the right solution for clients and what’s easiest for them to comply with the law.”

Let us review your system and ensure it suits your business now and in the future, contact us now 03 8710 9900.

New Recruits


Finding good people that are dedicated to the values and culture of our business is a challenge.  We have been really fortunate over the last few months in finding 3 new recruits that both fit in and strengthen the existing team of dedicated and hard working people that I am proud to have in our company.  Together we will continue to improve how and what we do.

So, I take great pleasure in introducing :-

Say Hello to Maria Karitellis

Maria’s current role is Office Admin support.  She is helping out with our admin functions, logging calls, and helping out Lee with support where she can.

Maria has been using Attache in her own business (which she recently sold) for many years, and her experience on the client side of the support line will be very helpful.

Say Hello to Jen Tudball-Smith

Jen’s role is to take all Sue’s work off her!  As a senior business systems consultant, she has an important role to play in understanding client’s needs and enabling them in Attache.

Jen comes to us from where she was the only financial person in a design company, dealing with everything including payroll and accounts.  She is a wiz with Excel spreadsheets too!

Say Hello to Andrew West

Andrew is taking on the challenge of the “National Business Development Manager”.  Over the last couple of weeks, he has been busily introducing himself to all clients.  His role includes customer relationships and new business, and is the man to contact if you are looking to make any changes and improvements in your business. He is based in sunny Darwin.

Andrew has also had lots of experience with Attache, including experience in management, warehousing, distribution and payroll.
